Dorothy Marie Naumann, 73, of Oxnard, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on July 30, 2017, at Cottage Hospital, in Santa Barbara surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on May 28, 1944, in Camden, New Jersey and was the eldest child of three born to John Park and Clara Marie Chalmers. She attended Pennsauken High School and graduated from the High School's 1st graduating class.

At age 18, the lure of adventure called and she joined the WAVES (women's branch of the US Naval Reserve). During this time, she met and married the love of her life and husband of 55 years, Richard Naumann.

After her discharge, Dorothy dedicated her life to her family as a stay at home mom, raising a son Jason and two daughters Christine and Brenda and travelling around the world with her husband's career to such places as Mojacar, Spain; Aberdeen, Scotland; and London, England. During her time in Scotland, Dorothy studied for and attained her private pilots' license. Upon returning to the US in 1984 and settling in Ventura County, Dorothy worked as a customer service representative before retiring in 2005. Dorothy's passions were her family, golfing, gardening and her dogs.

Dorothy is survived by her husband, Rick; daughters and sons-in-law, Brenda and Kirk Ellis of Thousand Oaks and Christine and Stephen Brown of Camarillo; grandson, Owen Brown of Camarillo; brother and sister-in-law, John and Linda Chalmers of New Jersey; brother, Guy Chalmers of New Jersey; mother-in-law, June Naumann; and her latest rescue pup "Scruffy."

She is preceded in death by her son, Jason; her parents; father-in-law, George Naumann; and her brother-in-law, Bill Naumann.

A public Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held on Friday, September 8, 2017, from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm, at the Wedgewood Banquet Center, 5880 Olivas Park Drive, in Ventura. The family is planning a private internment ceremony at Ivy Lawn.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Ted Mayr Funeral Home, 3150 Loma Vista Road, Ventura, CA 93003. Condolences may be sent to TedMayrFuneralHome.com.
